Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Seamlessly Synchronize Your Notes with Easy Cloud Notes
Ever since Google Keep was released some time ago, it has become an everyday staple for many users. And who’s to blame them. The application is simple, east-to-use, and has an aesthetic and efficient interface. However, one potential complaint that some may have with Keep is that it relies on Google’s cloud to store its notes and allow you to access them across devices. While Google is widely considered to be the best and the most reliable personal cloud solution, some may prefer to use a different service.
This is where XDA Recognized Developer Goddchen comes in. He created an app called Easy Cloud Notes. And as it name implies, it allows you to take cloud notes rather easily. Currently, it supports various note types, as described by developer:
It supports the common note types:
- Text notes
- Photo notes
- Audio notes
- Drawings (coming soon)
Sounds a bit like Google Keep, right? Well since we like having choice, that’s where these apps diverge. So what kind of cloud services does Easy Cloud Notes support? Currently, the supported cloud services include the following:
- Google Drive
While I assume that most who use this app will end up using Google Drive for the back end, it’s still quite nice to be given choice. After all, that’s part of the reason we love Android, right? On top of the diverse note types and user-selectable cloud backup solutions, the app’s interface is well designed, as seen in the developer’s other apps that we’ve featured in the past.
If that’s gotten you excited, you can go ahead and give it a shot by heading over to the application thread.

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
